    Sorry to bump this old thread, but the guy who bought the car from me is putting the car up for sale. He upgraded the interior to leather/suade seats, wood trim, heated seats, etc.

    If anyone's interested, I can give you his contact.

    Most of the things you mentioned aren't a huge deal.

    #1: Get rid of your run-flats ASAP. They absolutely suck. The car I bought has regular tires.
    #2: It'd be nice but there is a sensor in the engine which checks the oil level.
    #3: No one is holding a gun to your head to change it every 10k miles. Go ahead and change it at 3-5 k miles.
    #5: Yeah, that's BS. You know who else said their tranny fluid is lifetime before BMW? Volvo. The guy I bought my car just had the tranny fluid replaced.
    #6: the story of modern cars...

    We're still a Volvo family. Still have the 03 V70 T5 and we plan on keeping it.
    I might put volvospeed.com decals on the BMW, what do you guys think lol?

    I was one of the first to get the OBX when it came out. And it was $350 at the time with both downpipes (straight and angled).

    It is a 6-speed. Auto 6-speed.
    But yeah there is. Wanted a manual but did some research and found that autos are actually a bit faster especially when you throw some mods on it.

    Some of you who have been around a little longer might remember my story.

    Had a 1998 S70 T5M from 2007-2013. Nothing too crazy...18T, OBX turboback, RICA tune, FMIC, R bumper, Comets, etc, etc. Was at around 280whp (trapped 105.3mph in the 1/4). But she was my baby.

    When I got her (2007):


    When I sold her (2013):






    After I sold the T5M, it just so happened that I picked this one up: 2003 V70 T5. How she currently sits:





    However, half way through my ownership of the T5M (probably around 2010-2011,) there was a car that I was looking forward to having one day.
    Well, just a couple of days ago, that day had arrived.

    2007 BMW 335i

    Obviously, I've seen pictures of the car before I went to see it. But, not gonna lie, when I saw it in person for the first time my jaw almost dropped to the ground. It was due to a combination of things: how clean the car was, the wheels, the paint color, the lighting, the setting inside the owner's garage.

    I took it easy on the modding on the 2003 V70 T5, however I don't plan to do the same with the E90.
    I'm sure most of you are familiar with these cars. Stock, they put down 270-280 whp. And it doesn't take much to make them pretty quick.

    My plans:
    Short term: Walnut blasting, JB4 tune, BMS Dual Cone Intake (350-360 whp)
    Mid term: Downpipes, FMIC, Meth Injection (410-420 whp)
    Long term: RB turbos, Exhaust, LSD (500++ whp)

    I think I may have found the one. Talking to the owner...we'll see!



    Extremely clean. Very well maintained. A bit higher mileage than I'd like, but it was babied.

    Thanks for the offer. I'm still gravitating more toward getting a sedan...

    LOLOL

    I appreciate all of your guys' input...it's something that I will think about. I know it's not a perfect car and it has it's issues, but it can be a blast to drive. I love the fact that it's got a quikc launch, not like our Volvos, which are pretty good on the highway, but absolute dogs off the line.

    For these cars, RWD > X-Drive?
    I'm sure the X has some advantages, but it seems RWD is a bit faster and more fun.
    For the HPFP, BMW has extended the warranty till 10 yrs/120k miles. Do you know if the injectors are covered in that as well?

    N54 are only 2007, 2008?
    Would you recommend N55 over the N54?
